THE UGLY SPIRIT
What's it like to be always together, always to be one of a pair, always to share the praise and the blame and never, ever, ever to have a birthday cake that's just for you?
The Ugly Spirit, directed by Garry Robson, was a mix of music, text and improvisation that fused the extraordinary talents of avant garde performance artist David Hoyle with the vocal skills of acclaimed soprano Denise Leigh. A selected audience are invited to wander and explore the undiscovered places that lurk behind the scenes in theatres and travelling shows before being taken to a private audience with Jessie and Bessie, the famous Siamese Twins.
The Ugly Spirit was originally created through a series of creative development workshops, development weeks and events with the involvement of the following groups:
Homotopia, Liverpool, Hereward College, Coventry, Contact the Elderly, London, Project Ability, Glasgow, DaDaFest International 2010.
